Matt Maeson and Betcha bring amazing performances to Atlanta’s music scene
April 26, 2019
Stopping by Atlanta on his first-ever sold out tour, “Bank on the Funeral,” performer Matt Maeson brought a unique voice, creative atmosphere, and swoon-worthy lyrics to Atlanta’s concert venue, The Vinyl, on Wednesday, April 24. With up-and-coming band Betcha opening for Maeson, the artists complemented each other perfectly.
Betcha, a young and hip boy band from Nashville, Tennessee, performed their popular songs “Coincidental,” “California,” and “Losing My Mind” among other fan favorites. With over 100,000 followers on Spotify, concert goers expect their fanbase to increase after this tour. After watching them passionately put their heart and soul into each song and engage with the audience, Betcha embodies the perfect band for rock and alternative music lovers to keep on their radar. They ended their opening performance with their newest song “Lucy Lucy,” which releases on all music streaming platforms on Friday, April 26.
Maeson, nearing two million followers on Spotify, showcased his vocals to the Georgia peaches, performing his hit songs “I Just Don’t Care That Much,” “Hallucinogenics,” and other songs off of the Bank on the Funeral album.
Unfortunately, due to a sore throat from previous performances, Maeson announced after four songs that fans could talk to him at the merch table, but that he would not be able to continue his performance. The audience assured him of his talent and encouraged him to continue on with his set, and Maeson played one of his most famous songs “Cringe” before stepping off of the stage and moving over to the merch table. The crowd applauded his performance and surged towards the table to snag a quick selfie with the performer. Although transient, his stunning and ethereal performance left a lasting impression on the audience.
Matt Maeson and Betcha will continue their tour from the east coast to the west coast for the next month. Their next performance on the “Bank on the Funeral Tour” will be at The Camel in Richmond, Virginia on Friday, April 26.
